feedback on Swissotel

The view was terrific, the room was just gorgeous with top bedding, nice artwork, super bathroom, and spotless. The location was ideal. Chicago is an incredible city and it was lovely to have Swissotel as a home base. For instance, after some hours at the Art Institute of Chicago, we walked back to the room, rested up with the great view, great TV, and great beds, before walking back to Millenial Park to attend the free opera highlights concert.

Chicago is an amazing city. The public transportation is so good (get your bus/subway pass at the CVS on Michigan Avenue around the corner from E. Wacker) and check out Lincoln Park.

Nice Stay

The Swiss was very nice, they hooked us up with a private corner room. The beds were super comfortable, and the bathrooms were very nice. I would absolutly stay there again. The only complaint I have was that the staff was not friendly, and bordered on rude.

"Great location, staff and service"

We were upgraded to a corner room that overlooked the Chicago river with a view of the Trump Hotel on one side and Navy pier and the lake on the other. We were very impressed with the unique layout of the room and all of the amenities. Our room even had a Keurig coffee maker in it.
